Shopzilla API

The Shopzilla, Inc. Catalog API provides access to the Shopzilla, Inc. inventory of catalogued products, merchant offers, and merchant ratings & reviews content through a query-based RESTful web service, responses formatted in XML or JSON|P.

Managed through the Shopzilla Publisher Program, a CPC affiliate marketing program, publishers are able to monetize using this API. Users of this API are able to choose between two versions, each providing logic native to its corresponding Shopzilla, Inc. property: Bizrate.com or Beso.com.

Bizrate API: Provides access to the entire Shopzilla, Inc. offer universe, exposing content from 8,000+ merchants. You would use this version to create a full comparison shopping site.

Beso API: Provides the opportunity to create a style-based experience with a curated set of offers focused in soft goods categories. You would use this version to create a fashion-oriented shopping site.

Both APIs provide access to the merchant ratings and reviews collected through the Bizrate Insights platform.

International? APIs also available for the United Kingdom, Germany, and France.

The new API is absolutely fantastic. However, it is missing a "Get All Merchants" call. You have to search for merchants by keyword which is not ideal.
